    Don't take "ing" away in your second one.

    It might get to be wrong. Wait the native speakers' answers

    Or if you did once, 'I lost the habit of playing soccer' or 'I got out of practice'.

    Whatever your question, your request needs addressing as to the kind of English you wish to speak. In terms of how you have phrased this, you might as well go the whole hog and say:

    Hey there, listen up ... I've gotta a question and you gonna answered it quickly - see!
    (I guess it would be what we might call 'gutter English".)

    otherwise
    Hi, I have a question.
    In the context of this forum, this is quite sufficient without making demands on others.
